Happy Hour in the Hills Hike: Mount Galbraith-A Denver Metro Network Event

What better way to celebrate summer than by spending your Friday evenings hiking the foothills instead of being stuck in some bar? We'll spend six Fridays (June-July) out in the foothills on short hikes that average around 5 miles round-trip. This hike is 4 miles round-trip with an elevation gain of close to 1,000 feet.  This hike is rated easy/moderate because there are some rocky sections.  We will have several stops so that we can chat and get to know one another because it IS happy hour after all! 

As always, I do not own a cell phone, so please contact me via Meetup prior to 1pm the day of the hike if you have any questions.  Keep in mind that the hike begins at 5:30, so in order to attend the hike you need to arrive closer to 5pm to sign the waiver, use the restrooms etc.  If you are not ready to leave at 5:30, then you will not be included in the hike.  All participants must sign a waiver in order to go on this hike. These hikes are for adults only with no dogs.  Remember that it is summer so it will be hot and sunny; bring plenty of water, sunscreen and a hat.  OR (because it's the late afternoon in summer) it will be raining/stormy so please bring appropriate rain gear just in case.  You may also want to bring something to eat since we will be out hiking at dinnertime. 

This link includes directions and a map of the park: http://jeffco.us/parks/parks-and-trails/mount-galbraith-park/.  Please leave a message here or email me on Meetup if you have any additional questions. 

See you on the trail!

    This was a great hike with beautiful weather; we had cloud coverage the entire time with no rain. Lots of butterflies and wildflowers.

    For everyone that's waitlisted for this hike, there's plenty of room for all of you at the hike on the 27th to Chief Mountain.
